1 NORTHERN TERRITORY ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG AND MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES DIRECTORY 2014/2015

However we accept no liability for inaccuracies or changes that may occur during and subsequent to publication.

3 INTRODUCTION The Northern Territory Council of Social Service (NTCOSS) and the Northern Territory Mental Health Coalition (NTMHC) are pleased to provide the second edition of the Directory of Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) and Mental Health Services (the Directory) for your information. The Directory is intended to enable users to easily locate and connect with AOD and mental health services. It focuses on not-for-profit and government organisations providing AOD, mental health treatment and community mental health services within the Northern Territory. It does not include private practitioners or providers of these services. To cater for people travelling across borders, the Directory includes website links to relevant peak organisations in other states. There is also a section including links to useful websites that provide information about AOD and mental health issues. We know that people who use AOD and mental health services often have a range of related and complex needs for which they may require support from other types of services. In this Directory, we have not tried to achieve exhaustive coverage of all of those related services. Rather, we have tried to focus on organisations providing direct care or support for people with AOD and mental health issues. There are other existing directories that can be utilised to provide links to a broader range of services (e.g. domestic violence, housing) beyond the scope of this Directory. The primary health care sector particularly Aboriginal community controlled health services, community and remote health centres - plays a critical role in connecting people to AOD and Mental Health services in the Northern Territory. In some areas, these centres will be the first and/or only point of contact available to people seeking assistance. Primary health care is a complex and discrete sector in its own right. As such, we have not attempted to map it comprehensively within this directory. However we have included a brief summary of the role of Aboriginal, community and remote health centres and links to contact details for these. In July 2013 substantial legislative reform occurred in the alcohol and other drugs arena in the Northern Territory. This has impacted on the provision of alcohol and other drugs treatment. The most significant change is the Alcohol Mandatory Treatment Reform, which is a legislated process for treatment of people who are repeatedly taken into Police protective custody due to their alcohol abuse. Information of this process can be found on the NT Government website (refer to section on useful websites). 3 3

5 OVERVIEW OVERVIEW OF OF SERVICE SERVICE TYPES TYPES We acknowledge that some organisations may have chosen to apply different categories to those we have adopted. Feedback from a number of organisations highlighted a range of views on categories, and some organisations did not fit neatly into a particular category. Our allocation of organisations to categories has been influenced by these considerations, and by each agency s modus operandi for the treatment of AOD and mental health issues. Consequently some organisations and their programs have been placed into categories where they seemed to best fit. Note that directory entries do not reflect all programs and services provided by individual agencies, as this Directory has focussed on those which are most relevant to persons needing AOD and Mental Health assistance. Individual agencies can provide more details about additional programs and services provided. The basis for allocating services by category is further explained below. Category Name Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social and Emotional Well Being Alzheimer s Support Group Blood Borne Viruses and Infections Support Group.
